"Free" Bitchin' Software!

So, today I'm taking a quick break from posting music and instead, sharing a cool little program I found that records sounds from your computer. I thought it was a pretty cool little tool and I hoped others might enjoy it as well.

I say "free" because, you don't have to pay unless you want to upgrade to a full account. I have not upgraded, nor do I plan on it, because it works just fine. I found a program that simply records any sound from your computer into MP3, WMA, OGG, or WAV formats depending on what you choose. It's very user friendly, it allows you to choose where the recordings will be saved to, as well as how loud it will record. There's a feature that allows you to "Auto Set" the recording volume. I recommend you use this because if it records too loud, it'll sound like crap. I've been recording songs for free rather than downloading and it just takes up as much time as it takes for the song to play. Of course, you can record anything. I can record the sounds of a youtube video, or any song or sound playing. Sound interesting?

That's it. Once you're on the page, on the bottom right there is a "Download" link.

And here's a quick video of a song I don't own....I guess I'll just record it!


 That was "Fightin' Words" by Casino Madrid by the way.
Keep Rockin'!

UPDATE: I just realized, the free version gives you a limited number of megabytes you can record. I believe the set number is somewhere around 125,000 MB's, so you have quite a bit if you're recording in MP3 format. There are also more programs out there like this. I'll probably just be deleting this one and downloading another when I'm out of free usage. I'm sure someone out there can find a fully free one. I'll be searching. Hit me with a link if you find a better one. Thank you :)

  11. This sounds like some excellent software. You can record anything from Charlie Sheen's latest crazy quote to the sound of a burping ostrich in the jungle (or wherever they live). Now I just hope I don't forget about it.

    P.S. I am following.
